20th November 2008 – The first Freesat+ digital TV recorder, the Humax FOXSAT-HDR, will arrive in UK stores from 22nd November 2008, offering the only way to pause, rewind and record Freesat high-definition (HD) digital TV, as well as providing access to a huge range of standard definition (SD) TV, radio and interactive channels.   

Freesat+ opens up a world of over 140 TV and radio services including fantastic HD programmes from the BBC and ITV. With Freesat+, viewers can control how and when they enjoy their favourite shows and even watch them time and time again once saved. Current HD highlights on Freesat include Strictly Come Dancing, Little Britain USA, In the Night Garden and Little Dorrit on BBC HD, with ITV HD currently featuring UEFA Champions League matches, England Internationals, The FA Cup and teen drama Britannia High.

The Humax FOXSAT-HDR will initially be available across selected John Lewis, Comet, Argos and Dixons stores plus some independent retailers, priced at around £299 (satellite installation, if required, is not included). Viewers who already have a satellite dish installed will, in most cases, simply be able to ‘plug and play’ with Freesat+, meaning no additional equipment is required.

Stock will be arriving in stores throughout December to increase distribution across the UK.  Interested buyers should contact retailers directly for details of stores that stock Freesat+.

The Humax Freesat+ digital box offers a host of features including:

  1. 320GB hard drive to store up to 80 hours of HD programming, or up to 200 hours of standard definition shows
  2. Eight day electronic programme guide to plan your viewing and recording with ease
  3. Series recording to automatically capture all the episodes of your favourite shows
  4. Live pause and instant rewind to give you full control over your viewing
  5. Option to record programmes in standard and high-definition when shows are broadcast in both formats
  6. Split recordings for two-part programmes that may have a break in the middle for a news bulletin, such as films
  7. Digital text and interactive services
